There are programs on a variety of subjects such as milk, lamb, and wool production, soil and water conservation, sustainable agriculture, food processing and modern farming.

Historic Center

1847 to 1967, the grist and feed mill operated and the barn served as a stable, and later as a sales area.

The machinery in the mill is all original and was left in place when it was shut down in 1967.

The barn is now a museum featuring the history of American barns, antique buggies, farming equipment and tools.


The Wolcott Mill Metropark has great hiking trails through the wooded areas and along the river. Many visitors often choose to hike through the lane at the farm.
